In quarantine with kids
1# The talker
We’ve been in quarantine for 18 days and my 9yo has been talking nonstop for 20 of them.— Jessie (@mommajessiec) April 5, 2020
Don’t underestimate a child's ability to grasp what's happening right now. I've discussed the pandemic and social distancing with my 4-year-old and she's decided to speak 3 inches from my face instead of the normal 1 inch.— mark (@TheCatWhisprer) March 16, 2020
4-year-old: Dad?— James Breakwell, Exploding Unicorn (@XplodingUnicorn) April 5, 2020
4: I bet you taste like macaroni.
So we're to that part of the quarantine.
4# PJ days
When it’s bedtime and you go to put your kid in pyjamas but realise you never got them dressed in the first place— MumInBits (@MumInBits) April 5, 2020
5# Knock knock knock
You know, I can handle a quarantine. I can handle rationing food. I can even handle having to relearn elementary math. But did this really have to be the week that my 4 year old learned to tell knock knock jokes?— Rhyming Mama (@sarabellab123) March 18, 2020
6# 6-month-old backpack contents
I don’t know who needs to hear this but unpack your kid’s backpacks and lunch boxes now or risk a nasty surprise when schools start to open back up again.— Jester D the Impaler (@JustMeTurtle) March 15, 2020
7# What are we doing?
What I’m doing can’t be called homeschooling. I’m fumbling with websites and school emails while my six year old runs half dressed through the house eating his fourth piece of “be quiet” toast.— Bunmi Laditan (@HonestToddler) April 7, 2020
8# Food shortage
Me to my kids: you have to eat right and get good sleep if you want to stay healthy.— Trick or Sweet Momissa (@sweetmomissa) April 7, 2020
Also me: *shouting at 5am* WHO THE HELL ATE MY BREAKFAST PRINGLES??
9# Throwback (with internet)
So we don’t go to restaurants, kids aren’t signed up for anything, and we are just staying home during spring break? Sounds like my childhood.— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) April 7, 2020
10# Quarantine events
13: My English teacher wants us to write in a journal every day— Marly (@VerbsRProudest) April 6, 2020
Me: What have you written so far?
13: “I don’t want to write a journal, & I don’t like Quarantine Chicken Surprise.”
M: Good opener.
11# Attention seekers
My kids have been so needy during quarantine lately. Always wanting me to color with them and give them things like food and water.— Stay at Homies (@stayathomies) April 1, 2020
12# Free time
Me: what’s the first thing you want to do after the quarantine?— WTFDAD (@daddydoubts) April 2, 2020
Wife: get a babysitter.
